While the rest of the world is freezing and most flowers are far from full bloom, I’m getting ahead of the season by wearing these dainty floral dresses instead of the usual F/W prints you’ve been seeing me in. Just G’s dresses are always so on point that I get one from every collection, except this time I managed to score two great finds that I know I can use and abuse once the temperature starts rising again.
The first dress actually has boning sewn into it for a not-necessary-but-always-appreciated slimming effect! This dress will definitely fly off the racks fast so best to head to any Just G store near you before stocks run out! So flattering I just want to wear it forever.
Just G boutique stores can be found in SM Megamall, Market Market, Sta. Lucia, SM Southmall, Eastwood City, SM North Edsa, SM Manila and SM Cebu. Just G and Gingersnaps share spaces at Shangri-la, Rockwell, Robinsons Metroeast, SM Baguio and SM Pampanga. They also have department store corners at SM Megamall, Robinsons Galleria, Landmark Trinoma, SM Makati, SM Mall of Asia, Robinsons Festival Mall, SM North Edsa, SM Cubao, SM Pampanga, SM Southmall and Robinsons Ermita.
Quick post! Clearly, someone had too much fun playing with similar shapes. It’s been a while since I last wore polkadots, and I couldn’t help but pair them with a leatherette skirt with these tiny golden dot studs on them. Maybe I should save this outfit again for the next New Year, in case the dots give me good fortune for 2014. I’m already having a blast this 2013 with all sorts of exciting projects, and I can only wish for more new experiences in the next couple of years. Gotta make that happen!
AHH! The quest for the perfect checkered leggings is finally over. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I get really obsessive-compulsive about patterns. High standards, maybe, or I’m just a little sensitive to what I like to see and wear. Some checkered leggings I’ve seen have squares that are too big, or have too contrasting colors. This, one, however… <3
I paired it with a top with cut-out shoulders, and holes that remind me of the ones that you cut out of giant posters and tarpaulins so that air can pass through. Err, yeah. I have the most unglamorous stuff in my head sometimes.
It’s wine red season again, and I went all matchy-matchy with my bag and shoes. These heels are my first pair in this color, and I wear them all the time now! It’s a classy shade of red that’s not too bright and bold. Now available in Schu Trinoma and Rockwell.
I’m sure everyone is already sick and tired of hearing me always rave about my favorite Japanese fashion icons and magazines, but I seriously can’t help but take so much inspiration from them! Flip through the pages of ViVi, and you’ll find models with the prettiest hair and the nicest, and not to mention, *wearable* clothes styled in the most adorable ways.
Top Japanese model Fuji Lena has been gracing the pages of ViVi for the longest time now! If I were asked who the poster girl for ViVi is, among all the models, I would answer Lena. Growing up, I’ve always wanted to look like her, but after a while, I realized that the only way I could ever look like her is to magically inject myself with American genes for that perfect ViVi Eurasian look, lol.
In general, Japanese models always give me hope when it comes to height. Masuwaka Tsubasa is only 150cm! *shock*
Lena’s trademark moles and natural duck lips/face are definitely her most unique points. Lena wouldn’t be Lena without these things! And ViVi always makes sure to highlight these parts.
One day, I wore this top and bottom combination that loosely reminded me of Lena’s modeling photos for the brand Rosebullet. Out of boredom, I tried to complete the whole Lena look by doing this very popular retro-girly hairstyle, as well as imitating her expressions in most of her photos. I know I’ll never be as pretty as her (she is like, a perfect being from another dimension), but this was just so fun to do that I am now totally game to do Japanese model-inspired hair/make/coordinate posts from now on!
Something different from the usual “blogger look”! I also somehow copied how she usually does her make-up. Perhaps I’ll do a Fuji Lena-inspired make-up tutorial one of these days.
Quick post! Pair something girly like florals with something badass like leather, and this is what you’ll get - two opposite things that surprisingly work well together.
Isn’t this brown leatherette skirt such a steal? I found it at a random store in Cineleisure Orchard one night, just before I headed back to my hotel to call it a day. Talk about luck! Now, all I need now is a black pleated version of this skirt. H&M released it a few seasons ago, but it got sold out before I knew it. I did, however, find a leatherette circle skirt at Forever 21 yesterday, so do go to the nearest store before everyone else!
This is me clearly taking advantage of the cold(er) weather! For this outfit, I paired my new printed bottoms with a faux leather jacket to create a playful and casual look that I was able to wear day and night.
Because I am very predictable in terms of my fashion choices, it’s already probably no surprise that this is mostly black and white again, with yellow color accent.
My supposed attempt to bring something new to the table was this maroon-colored bag, which turned out to still be very “me”, considering I practically wore this color almost everyday when the year started!
How do you like this look? I was inspired by the kind of fashion I saw in Paris while I was there last April! Most of the girls in the streets wore all sorts of chic leather jackets which they styled in different ways. Of course this jacket isn’t real leather, but it totally works here in tropical Manila since it doesn’t give off the same amount of heat as real leather, making it still very wearable on gloomier days!
